I curse you, Shame - a Persistent thief who Sneaks into mornings, which turn into Days - with your Memories and fears Determined to Steal esteem To fuel New days, which Turn into years. Standards My crown of bricks Weighs upon my head - Where it sits Mocking me with its Symbolism, and dissent From expectation. I understand it looks odd. Please trust It often Feels awful. But, for me, it’s more of a must Than a choice. So go ahead, stare. I’ve learned constant Application of pressure Ensures Consistent Results.
